Financial journalist Johan Wendel is confident Ek can afford to buy the north London side and reckons he can lead the Gunners to competing with some of the biggest clubs.
“I don’t think Daniel Ek would make a tweet like that, a comment like that, if he hadn’t thought of the financial considerations,” Wendel told Sky Sports News.
“I think he can afford it and the bulk of that wealth is Spotify shares.
“He owns Spotify shares worth almost £3.2b, so that’s the bulk of those shares.
“He might be able to use those for leverage for a bank, stuff like that.
